Selection of nest-site of azure-winged magpie in experimental bases of garden science institution in Harbin was surveyed from June to September in 2010 by quadrat sampling method, and factor habitats of nest quadrate were examined by factor analysis method. The results indicated that coniferous forests were mainly selected for nest construction; little variation and homogeneous distribution were presented in distance of nests in the same habitat; factors including tree height of nest, distance of the nearest nest, the average altitude of  arbor in quadrat, the diameter of nest tree, distance to disturbance, distance to the nearest tree were measured and analyzed. This indicated nest trees and small surrounding habitats were chosen by azure-winged magpie in selection of nest habitats.
